The Teijin Group, a technology-driven group from Japan, is set to partake in Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF), a global business-focused environmental forum, to be held in Bonn, Germany on November 13 and 14, 2017, in stand 6. SIF is part of the annual Conference of Parties (COP) that will be organised by Climate Action and United Nations (UN) Environment.

The Teijin stand will present various environmental-value solutions that combine enhanced ecological and financial methods based on Teijin’s high-tenacity, lightweight, and high-performance materials for reduced CO2 emissions and energy savings.

Carbon Concrete is a sustainable solution for green-construction that can substitute for traditional steel-reinforced concrete. Carbon Concrete is used in prefabricated parts and for restoring buildings, streets and bridges. Tenax carbon fibre is an exceptionally versatile construction material offering excellent tenacity and five times the strength of steel. Carbon Concrete slabs made with Tenax can be relatively thin because they do not require a steel core to protect the composites from corrosion. Carbon Concrete dramatically reduces the quantity of concrete required, lowers logistics costs, speeds up construction, and shortens drying times.

Twaron is a high-tensile-strength para-aramid fibre used in tires for automotive and aerospace applications. Twaron replaces multiple layers of textile reinforcements with just one layer of aramid, thereby reducing the need for materials and rubber compounds for lower raw material costs, less fuel consumption, and a smaller environmental footprint.

Tenax and Twaron are being used in the prototype wheels for the Solar Voyager, a 100 per cent solar-powered vehicle that Dutch adventurer Edwin ter Velde is expected to drive to the South Pole in 2018 in the Clean2Antarctica project.

Teijin is expanding its innovative customer-oriented, eco-economic solutions that offer ecological and financial advantages over current mainstream solutions and business models. By participating in SIF, Teijin looks forward to raising awareness of its contributions to environmental protection through green-minded products and services. (GK)
